52 GRAVESTONES IN 52 WEEKS 4: TILDEN FAMILY PLOT, MARSHFIELD HILLS CEMETERY PT1

Another photo from my  20111 visit to the Marshfield Hills Cemetery in Marshfield, Ma.
It's another family plot for members of the Tilden family, so these are more distant cousins. I'm
descended from Nathaniel Tilden, my 9x great grandfather. His son Stephen (my 8x great
grandfather) lived in Marshfield with his wife Hannah Little, who he married there in 1661.





 The family name is easily visible at the bottom of the monument... 


...but the names of the family members are weathered and difficult to read.

These headstones are also in tough shape.


Luckily, there were two gravestones with readable first names, and that helped me determine which
Tildens are buried here. I'll discuss that in the next post.
